Short Category Test, Booklet Format

BY LINDA WETZEL, PHD AND THOMAS J. BOLL, PHD

The Short Category Test, Booklet Format (SCT) reduces the length and complexity of the Halstead-Reitan Category Test, one of the most sensitive indicators of brain damage.
    
Brief and portable, the SCT uses less than half of the items on the original test and presents them in convenient, spiral-bound booklets. It eliminates the expensive, cumbersome equipment required by the Halstead-Reitan Category Test yet still effectively assesses cognitive deterioration in adults.
    
In each of five subtests, 20 Stimulus Cards depict shapes, lines, colors, and figures. The client is shown the cards, one at a time, then asked to discern the principle underlying each series. This requires specific abilities: abstract concept formation, learning capacity, adaptive skill, and cognitive flexibility. By testing these abilities, the SCT uncovers important, but often subtle, deficits present in brain-damaged individuals.
    
Easy to administer and score—even at bedside—the test can be given to anyone alert enough to give a one-word response. (Those who are language impaired can respond by pointing to numbers on a special card provided with each subtest booklet.)
    
The SCT functions in a manner similar to the Halstead-Reitan Category Test—in terms of psychometric properties, discriminative ability, and correlation with other neuropsychological tests. Typically, the test is used to detect the effects of closed-head injuries, isolate the organic components of psychiatric illness, identify early stages of dementia, assess the effects of chronic conditions such as diabetes, and measure cognitive status after neurosurgery or rehabilitation.
    
The SCT gives you the diagnostic power of the Halstead-Reitan Category Test without its practical limitations.
